The first show, tentatively titled Taking Atlanta, will feature a "group of aspiring and ambitious Atlanta locals as they make their mark in the arenas of fashion, music, hospitality and real estate while exploring the city’s sizzling social scene and balancing the demands of their tumultuous family situations."
TLC promoted Breaking Amish as a show about five sheltered young adults, four Amish and one Mennonite, leaving their communities to experience life beyond the church. Millions tuned in to watch Kate Stoltzfus, Abe Schmucker, Rebecca Byler, Jeremiah Raber, and Sabrina High walk away from their family and friends to chase their dreams in New York. We felt sorry for these people for being exploited by TLC but the joke was on us! Almost immediately, Breaking Amish was proven to be a sham.
Kate, Abe, Rebecca, Jeremiah, and Sabrina weren't as new to modern electronics, driving cars, and English clothes as they portrayed themselves to be on the show. For crying out loud, most of the cast had marriages, divorces, and children below their belts before TLC supposedly plucked them from the farm. However, there's no doubt in my mind that TLC knew all of this and coached them to "play Amish" for the sake of the cameras. I also think TLC hoped the viewers would figure it out, expose the cast's lies, and create a huge scandal. And that's exactly what happened. Does this bring us back to feeling sorry for the poor kids? For me, no, because most of them acted like jerks when their lies were exposed.
Apparently, fake stories, liars, and misogynistic a**holes (looking at you, Jeremiah) sell, because Breaking Amish was a ratings success for TLC. There are rumors about a second season, but Kate reportedly doesn't want anything to do with Breaking Amish Season 2.
We get our first look at the new show in this highlight reel released by Bravo and now I see why Lisa was able to remain on season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND tape a spinoff show – because (from the glimpse in the video) she won't be the main focus on Vanderpump Rules! After watching the trailer, it seems as if it will be more about the drama in the lives of her employees at Sur. I have to admit that I have the sads after watching and seeing that Lisa's fabulosity won't be the central focus.
Take a look and tell us what you think. Will you tune in for "employees gone wild"?

Does the world really need one more teens-a-mess reality show?
According to Lifetime, yes. The network picked up eight hour-long episodes of a new series titled Teen Trouble. The show's host, Josh Shipp, is a teen behavior specialist, motivational speaker, and former advice correspondent for MTV's Total Request Live. He's also the author of The Teen's Guide to World Domination: Advice on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Awesomeness.
In Teen Trouble, Josh will "embed himself" into the "hidden lives" of teens who are abusing drugs and alcohol, stealing from family, and otherwise breaking the law. He will then confront the teens and parents with a few harsh truths.
Tia & Tamera star Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. Aden John Tanner Housley arrived in his own good time, two weeks after his due date. Aden weighed in at 9 lbs., 5 oz.
We suspected something was up when Tamera disappeared from Twitter on November 4th, leaving us all guessing as to when the big arrival would happen. I may or may not have put a Twitter text message alert on my phone if any sudden movements were detected on her account. Instead of taking the Twitter route, Tamera confirmed with People this afternoon that she gave birth yesterday at Cedars-Sinai.
Congrats to Tamera and Adam – we can't wait for pics!!
It looks like E! has another hit on their hands. The network announced that it has renewed Married to Jonas for a second season.
Since debuting in August, Married to Jonas has been E!'s highest rated hit in the 10 p.m. time slot on Sundays! The show features Kevin Jonasand his wife Danielle Deleasa as they navigate married life along with career and family.
E! shared in their announcement, “We are excited to continue following Kevin and Dani’s journey as they juggle love and marriage with pop superstardom and eager in-laws."
Yikes. We all speculate on whether reality shows are scripted or completely fake. Of course, no one ever comes out and says a show isn't legit…especially if it's the star of the show! I guess Dave Hester from Storage Wars didn't get that memo.
The star of the A&E hit has caused lots of drama with the network after rumors started swirling that he was saying the show isn't what it seems to viewers. What? Next, I'm going to hear that Si's beard on Duck Dynasty isn't real. I just don't know how much more of these crazy rumors I can take!
Well, it's Hurricane Sandy out there. I've already hunkered down with chicken wing dip and a vain hope that I won't lose power or internet while the winds howl wildly. And I'm not the only one, plenty of reality stars are stranded on the east coast trying to brave the hurricane.
We hope everyone is safe and in a comfortable place to ride out the storm!
